Trees For Houston is proud to partner with American Forests and Bulleit Bourbon to plant 85 fifteen-gallon trees at TC Jester Park along Egbert Street and Kansas Street. The objectives of the planting are to improve flood mitigation, reduce the urban heat island effect, beautify the park, and provide shade for the community.

The project is located in a Central Texas neighborhood that was completely devastated by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, with numerous street trees killed in the flood. The area also suffers from extreme urban heat island effects, in a city that is among the top twenty fastest warming cities in the country.

Community members were key to catalyzing the project, reaching out to Trees for Houston to reforest their trails and streets. The 85 trees planted will provide shade and thermal refuge along bike and walking paths at TC Jester Park, promoting recreation and improving health and wellness for the neighborhood.

Every tree planting project demonstrates impacts that create a more just and sustainable future.
